Sheffield Wednesday hoping to complete deal for 9-goal star



According to Portuguese outlet Record, Sheffield Wednesday remain keen on signing Joao Amaral on loan for 2018/19 in the Championship.

Wednesday finished last season on a largely optimistic footing with them chalking up some decent results as key men returned to the side.

They need to try and build on that for next season now, then, and Amaral remains a player that they re keen on.

The forward hit nine goals last season for Vitoria Setubal and earlier this summer signed for Portuguese giants Benfica.

Wednesday are hoping, though, that the Lisbon-based side is willing to loan him out for the coming campaign as they look for more attacking options.

The club does have a fair few strikers already, of course, but with many of them struggling for form last season, it might make sense that the Owls are looking to shake things up regardless.

The Verdict

Amaral obviously has a bit about him for Benfica to take the plunge and sign him up.

If they feel that he is not yet ready to play for them next season, though, the Owls might just be able to swoop in and complete a loan deal.

There’d definitely be some intrigue around this one.
